Chrome Overtakes Firefox
New data shows that Google's Chrome browser is quickly gaining users, and has now passed Firefox for 2nd place in Worldwide browser usage. The most used browser is still Microsoft's Explorer, but its share of users has been dropping steadily for three years. Now Mozilla's open-source Firefox browser also appears to be losing market share to Chrome. Much of the shift has taken place in Asia and, especially, in South America, where Chrome is already number 1.
